7:14 am
through and temperatures really were on the mild side. they were all night last night. but a little bit of cool air on the way from this low pressure that's up off the pacific northwest. as this cool air pushes south into the bay area, the numbers will be coming down a bit today. we'll manage highs only in the mid-50s for the most part. you remember last weekend we had some spots that were over 70 degrees. not today. just a chance of a few light showers tonight in the north bay. today, we'll get sunshine coming out. just it won't be as warm in the air as we had over the past couple of days. let's look for ahead. becoming sunny, clouds moving out from the northwest. kind of a dry flow. you see the models are showing not a drop of rain falling in the bay area, but we don't always believe the models. we'll at least keep a chance in there tonight in the north bay. on the airport on monday, mostly sunny for sfo. for los angeles, 63. new york gets snow and 36 degrees. forecast for the bay area, we'll be looking at numbers in the 50s.
7:15 am

7:16 am
like piranhas out there. it's a jungle, but all hope isn't lost. >> looking around the bay area, what are the best places to kind of focus on right now, if you're thinking about buying a starter home? >> all comes down to what you can qualify for. everyone would love to live in the city, but the average sales price is 700-some dollars. it really comes down to your needs. your school district, commute. not that easy of a question to answer. be true to you. true to you. >> understandable. common mistakes first time homeowners might engage in? >> that's a good question. most common one i see is i always tell people know what's in your wallet before you walk into the store. >> well, because that is the problem. i mean, that's what caused us so much grief years ago. people signed up for mortgages they couldn't deal with. >> right, exactly. i mean, some people would spend months shopping for a place, going to open houses, then when they get to the contract, all of a sudden they realize i
7:17 am
can't afford this. then they are in contract and they lose a deposit. make sure you confer with your loan agent and your real estate agent before you start wasting all that time and falling in love with a property and then getting your heartbroken. >> right, yes. good call on that. what kind of assistance is available for people right now when it comes to getting loans? >> well, there's all sorts of loans out there. but if you're a first time buyer, there's all sorts of programs, like bmr units, below market rate homes, for example. in the city, new construction buildings, they need to allocate x amount of units for people who make a certain amount of income. so that's one way to get into the market. another way is downpayment assistance programs out there, like hayward, oakland, emeryville all have revolving loans they will give to certain buyers who qualify. that will definitely help your down payment, which reduces your monthly payments. >> that's a good thing. what about the new trend, rent- to-own? >> it's coming back now. not my favorite topic. i don't think it's in the best interest of the buyers, but for
7:18 am
some people who are desperate to get into a certain neighborhood by a certain timeframe, that's the only way you can go. it's a last resort. people who go to rent-to-own typically don't have the best credit, don't have the best down payment, and it is their only way they can access a certain house or neighborhood. it's something that i -- i mean, i'm a little iffy on it. >> not so good for the buyers, but what about for the sellers? >> for the sellers, it's great. you get someone in there, maybe they already bought another place and don't want to have it sit there vacant. that person will pay higher than market rent to the landlord because they are paying for a premium for that option to exercise the buy after like two or three years. it's great for the landlords. >> okay. so the trends have been looking up over the last year when it comes to home sales. >> yeah. >> what do you perceive happening over the next couple of years? are we headed for another bubble? >> i don't have a crystal ball. all i know is the market is bananas right now, just bananas. only time will tell. >> herman chan with luck's sf

7:30 am
flammable liquid electrolyte. federal investigators are examining the disassembled battery from the 787 that caught fire in boston january 7th, spewing bolts and electrolytes. george blondegren says lithium ion batteries are bundled together for the 787, increasing the risk. >> these fires burn at a very high temperature, so they are just very dangerous. >> reporter: the boston fire and the burned-out battery on a dreamliner in japan are not the first time lithium ion batteries have caused problems. in 2011, a chevy volt lithium battery was damaged in this crash test. three weeks later, it burst into flames. chevrolet installed a number of fixes to prevent fires. safety features were also added to lithium ion batteries in some cell phones and laptops, after 56 million were recalled for risk of overheating and exploding. boeing says lithium ion batteries best met the

7:49 am
wears. >> insanely cute as petra is in her little outfit right now, i don't think it would be appropriate workout wear. she is short coated, but dogs have a higher core temperature. once they start to exercise, their temperature can go up pretty quickly. so as much as i love it, i don't think i would recommend it for outdoor wear. >> the potential is there for them to overheat, especially if they are running pretty hard and they have a lot of excess layers. they do expel heat by panting and through their feet. so obviously as long as those areas are open, they should be pretty, pretty okay. but we definitely don't need to overdo the padding when they are running. >> if you're working out with a dog near a body of water, i would definitely recommend not letting them take a sip of any pond water, lake water, sea water, any of those things. the potential is definitely there for them to pick up parasites and in the case of sea water, it can really dehydrate them and give them pretty bad diarrhea. >> one of the things we
7:50 am
definitely see in the winter as veterinarians is weekend warrior syndrome, where people sort of save up the days during the week they are not going, then go all-out on the weekends. sometimes dogs aren't quite equipped for that, especially if they have been used to running every single day in the summer or in the spring and then they are a little more sedentary during the winter. but because of our beautiful weather, we get a nice day or so, not uncommon for people to really overdo it and add a lot of them on one or two days as opposed to spreading exercise out over the week. things we'll see are sore pads or in some cases torn pads or sore knees and hips. just basically the same things that you would have if you tried to get off the couch and run a marathon. >> i'm overwhelmed by the cuteness! here is an adoptable friend that you could follow those rules with. this is cutie. sherry franklin from muttville joins us live now. tell us about cutie.
